  1. My current RAM (Corsair Vengeance PRO RGB) is too high on my current MOBA (GA-AX370-Gaming K5) and I can't mount the AIO on the top side of the case because of it (about 8mm too tall right now). As I'm upgrading to ryzen 4000 most likely I'd like to prevent having to buy a new case with the new MOBA. Can't front mount the AIO, because my current GTX 1080OC is too long. Just trying to solve this without swapping cases.
  2. Any idea where I could find the dimensions for this? Best to contact the manufacturers?
  3. Hey guys, I was looking at different layouts of MOBAs (because I'm looking for lower dimm slots, to fit top mounting AIO into my iCUE 220t) and want to know the dimensions of the spacings for the RAM. My current GA-AX370-Gaming K5 (rev. 1.x) - Gigabyte paired with the Corsair Vengeance PRO RGB does not clear my AIO and I'm running it with single fan RN (i7-7700). But want to make sure when I upgrade to the Ryzen 400 series I can use both the fans). My question is are the positions of the ram slots standardized? Are they always the same distance away from the top of the board? From my eagle eye analysis it looks like they are dependant on each model. For clarity of my question I'm attaching an image for reference. Any idea where I could get these dimensions? (I have downloaded a bunch of user manuals but they never list those numbers).
  4. What the hell... never heard of EKWB until today. Their HQ is literally 10 minutes away from my work and we're moving our HQ to the same place now. Thanks for recommending that, looks like they'll get my surprise visit this week. I don't quite understand the 320W under load, because from what I've searched for the actual power spiked when you hit it with a load can be higher than 320W, right?
  5. Yep, I'm more for waiting than getting the current gen. Agreed, will lookup the MSI B550/X570 you suggested. What are your thoughts on the ROG STRIX B550-E? Well I'm quite paranoid about the draw of the new cards and don't want to have no headroom. I have no experience with this so feedback is welcome, just don't want random power downs. Yes, I checked the benchmarks, its 1% difference between the XT and X, so basically nothing. Totally agree with the 3090 being completely not worth it, that's why the 3080 seems like the only reasonable performance/cost combo. Never did custom water cooling but I was looking at the DIY kits from Corsair, those look dope and easy for someone with 0 exp. But never really looked up any reviews of that. Maybe put that on the to do list in about 6m.
  6. Yes, I'm 90% more skewed towards waiting on the next gen.

Would you guys recommend I wait for Ryzen 4000 series or just get the 3900XT or 3950x? This just looks like the best choice right now. I was really only using Intel up to this point but now I am switching to AMD and joining the Hype train. I know Intel is not a bad choice esp. for gaming. Any real pros for going blue except for the "Adobe CC benefiting from higher clocks"? Can't decide on the board for the CPU. I don't think we're getting new boards for the Ryzen 4000 and buying one now if it goes on sale seems ok. What do you think on going for a B550 board? I was not really sure on the differences and great choices like the ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING. GPU really isn't even a debate from my perspective. Waiting on the reviews for the 3080, but seems like a clear winner to me. The 3090 looks just an overkill. Any pros going 3090? Not planning on going 4K.
  8. Dude I have the same config (even the monitor and the SSD lol) and just want to let you know not to get the iCUE 220t RGB case from Corsair as you might get some clearance issues when top mounting your radiator because of the RAM height. (front mounting AIO is not an option because the GTX 1080 is too long for the case) I currently have the Gaming K5 MOBA and have this issue, while waiting on Ryzen 4000 to launch and get the new CPU/MOBA.
  9. I got some issues started when I upgraded my build & case while preparing for the Ryzen 4000 desktop & RTX 3000 launches. [I apologize for the potential not MOBA related question I am posting here, as one may conclude that my case indeed is a problem with the case] While upgrading the RAM to the Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB model and getting a new iCUE H100i RGB PRO XT Liquid CPU Cooler, I also switched to the iCUE 220T RGB Airflow case from Corsair. While top mounting (I want to say mounting to the top of the case) the AIO I notice that the RAM is too thick to the side and it doesn't have enough space for the second AIO fan. My current configuration is a top mounted AIO with just one of the fans installed (plenty for the i7-7700 current CPU). Before you suggest front mounting (to the front of the case) the AIO does not clear the length of my GTX 1080OC. Not willing to switch to thinner profile fans. The MOBA I'm currently running is the GA-Z270X-Gaming K5. My question is if there are any X570 MOBAs that have the RAM slots pushed down (towards the PCIe slots) a bit more that would let me clear the RAM? Would you guys suggest I rather switch the case (iCUE 220T)? I checked and according to the specs I would be able to install the RTX 3080 Founders Edition (waiting on the cooling perf. reviews). If anyone has any link to the dimensions and positions of the slots on MOBAs that would greatly help me out. I searched quite a bit but didn't find any links (other than the atx dimensions stated on the spec sheets).
